Fulham vrs West Ham - Team News

last updated Friday 26th September 2008, 3:29 PM

Fulham (from):

Schwarzer, Zuberbuhler, Stockdale,

Stoor, Paintsil, Hangeland, Hughes, Baird, Kallio, Konchesky, Leijer,

Andreasen, Bullard, Murphy, Teymourian, Davies, Gera, Brown,

Zamora, Nevland, Johnson, Dempsey.

Midfielder Dickson Etuhu will again have to wait for his Fulham debut as he has still not fully recovered from a thigh strain picked up in training earlier this month.

Manager Roy Hodgson has no other injury concerns ahead of the clash and will revert to his usual Premier League line-up after giving some fringe men run-outs at Burnley in the Carling Cup in midweek.

Striker Diomansy Kamara (knee) remains the only long-term absentee.

West Ham (from):

Green, Lastuvka,

Upson, Neill, Ilunga, Davenport, Lopez,

Parker, Etherington, Behrami, Faubert, Noble, Mullins, Reid, Collison,

Boa Morte, Di Michele, Sears, Cole.

West Ham manager Gianfranco Zola is hoping Craig Bellamy and Carlton Cole will be available for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash at Fulham.

Bellamy has made just one substitute appearance this season due to a groin injury - scoring in the 4-1 win against Blackburn - while Cole sat out the midweek Carling Cup defeat at Watford with a minor ankle knock.

Calum Davenport could also return to the squad but Dean Ashton is out with an ankle injury which requires investigative surgery next week.
